If you like butterscotch candies, you’re going to love this Butterscotch Bundt Cake. Bundt cakes are pretty and impressive looking, easy to serve, and simple to make.
I love baking with JELL-O. One of my most requested cakes, Pistachio Cake, is made with pistachio JELL-O, so I wanted to make another cake that was similar, but made me think of the holidays.
Right away, I thought about butterscotch. It’s a great flavor that I haven’t worked with nearly enough, so I picked up some butterscotch instant JELL-O.
CAN YOU ADD JELLO TO A CAKE MIX?
You can! Combining JELL-O with a doctored cake mix makes for a super moist cake. The powdered sugar glaze on top is just the right amount of sweet without being overly sweet.
I’ve also made cookies with JELL-O and it makes for a really soft and chewy cookie. I’m telling you, if you haven’t baked with it, you need to give it a try.
Butterscotch Bundt Cake Ingredients
- Yellow Cake Mix – I’m partial to Duncan Hines, but use your favorite.
- JELL-O Butterscotch Pudding Mix – Make sure you get INSTANT pudding and not stovetop.
- Milk – I use 2%
- Butter – You’ll melt the butter before adding it.
I made this Butterscotch Bundt Cake over the weekend and I’ve already had two requests to make it again. Julia loved it, my mom loved it, and Bob’s co-workers loved it.
I already have plans to make another one later this week to send with my mom to her small group. Luckily, it’s really easy to make.
I used my hand mixer to bring it together but you could also use a whisk if that’s what you have on hand. Just give it some elbow grease.
I also think it’d look great (and be well received!) on a Thanksgiving or Christmas dessert table. Butterscotch isn’t a flavor you see very often but I think it’s underrated!
Other pudding/JELL-O recipes that have been really popular at holidays and family gatherings are the No Bake Chocolate Lush, “Sand” Pudding, and Strawberry Poke Cupcakes. So many ways to use JELL-O products in desserts!
Equipment you’ll need
- A pretty bundt pan – I want another one.
- A good hand mixer will make your life easier. I didn’t know I needed a light on mine until I got one.
- A cake knife/server. I literally just ordered this one because as you can see, mine is pink.
